How To Create A Wonder Woman Halloween Costume

Comic book fans are *really* excited about the new Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot. The Israeli actress and model was cast as the iconic comic book hero in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” this year and in next year’s “Wonder Woman.” If you love superhero films or have always been a fan of Wonder Woman (what little girl/adult woman ISN’T??) then you should definitely do this costume for Halloween this year. It’s so timely! Plus, you can make it a group costume and grab two guys friends to play Batman and Superman (now, that’s a sandwich I’d like to be in).

Here’s the trailer for the new “Wonder Woman” film to get you REALLY excited:

And of course, her first appearance in the “Dawn of Justice” film. Always kicking butt:

K, so now that you’re mentally prepared, aka pumped up, for the role, let’s break down the costume parts:

Wonder Woman’s Hair: 

Wonder Woman’s hair is brown and wavy and has lots of body. If you have blonde hair you absolutely need to wear a wig. If you’re a brunette and have long hair you can style it like Wonder Woman’s by teasing the crown, using a curling wand and doing a great blowout. (More on that below). If you don’t have long brown hair to create the look with, try a wig. I think this Smiffy’s Siren Long Curly Wig ($15.14) is good because you can easily put her headpiece around the crown where the wig is flat.

Here’s a Wonder Woman Hair and Makeup tutorial you can use if you want to do your own. Obviously, you’ll need red lipstick!!:

Wonder Woman’s Outfit: 

Wonder Woman basically wears a red corset, a blue skirt and a gold belt. If you want to DIY it at home, you can use a red strapless top and blue mini. I’m assuming you don’t already own either, so here’s a costume you can literally just buy: Dawn of Justice – Deluxe Wonder Woman Costume For Women ($35.73). It’s not crazy priced and it seems to be the best quality Wonder Woman costume I could find online.

I also found online just the corset part which seems pretty legit/flattering. If you don’t like the fit of pre-packed costumes (they are usually pretty chintzy), then try to put the look together yourself. It even comes with blue hot shorts (which I doubt you want to just wear alone!): Woman Halloween Costume Overbust Corset with Shorts ($27.99).

If you’re putting the costume together, the shinier the blue skirt, the better. This one I found on Amazon is pretty cheap and looks like something a superhero would wear: Women’s Shiny Liquid Metallic Wet Look Flared Pleated Skater Skirt ($7.99).

Obviously you need some kick a$$ red tall boots. I like the look of these Funtasma by Pleaser Women’s Wonder-130 Knee-High Boot ($36.18)–the heels isn’t too high, the red leather looks somewhat quality, and they’re under $40. Nice!

Wonder Woman’s Crown: 

Obviously you’ll need Wonder Woman’s gold headband/crown. This Star Crown Costume ($17.95) seems to be one of the better ones you can find online for the costume.

Wonder Woman’s Weapons: 

Wonder Woman needs her shield, obviously. I’m assuming you don’t have one lying around and will need to buy one. This Dawn of Justice Wonder Woman Shield ($20.99) seems to be pretty authentic looking for $20.

Lastly you’ll need her sword. If you have any sword from a previous Halloween costume or your kid’s toy bin, just use that. Otherwise, grab one on a cheap costume site or Amazon. This one’s good: Dawn of Justice Wonder Woman Sword ($7.83)
